Today, LoungeBuddy—the free app that tells you everything you need to know about airport lounges—is launching a first-of-its-kind service: the ability to book airport lounge access through an iPhone.
With the new LoungeBuddy, you won’t have to hold status with airlines, or have booked a certain class of ticket, or any of that to escape the airport chaos inside a lounge. All you’ll have to do is open the app, scroll through the lounge options available in your airport, and tap-tap-tap your way to a booking.
As of today, 26 lounges are available in the US and UK through the app, with many more scheduled to follow soon. Here’s the US list as it stands on December 18, 2014:
Bookable US lounges as of of 12/18/2014

DFW — Minute Suites, Terminal D
PHL — Minute Suites, Terminal A/B
ANC — Alaska Airlines Board Room, South. Concourse C
